10:02 am
from ten am everyone every man has said the sore throat and all the time i think this is because it will burn i think will feel the true consequences later there are still people out here it's a lot of children we haven't noticed you know. how we spoke to former british army an intelligence officer who's recently returned from ukraine he told us the attack bears signs of white phosphorus weapons i've seen the video i've looked at it closely it does indeed tallow what one might say. the hallmarks of white phosphorous use for example a very bright light burned in and multiple burns coming down from the sky it's an app that would use such as a mortar or perhaps and a craft and then of course again to tell it's still burning in videos i've seen in the daytime showing actually this very tactile white or gray smoke so white phosphorus being used it's an alarming development of course it needn't necessarily be legal but it depends on the use scituate consent and that's exactly why of
10:03 am
course and indeed other people even from the west should be even if i haven't so far should be calling for a proper and full investigation of this incident to prevent escalating. now white phosphorus is extremely flammable and cannot be put out was water it causes severe chemical burns often with lethal consequences perhaps its most of tori's use was the two thousand and four bombing of fallujah in iraq witnesses they are described people literally melting to death the fear now is that the is munitions are being used and slovyansk a city of over one hundred thousand people which has now been under tillery fire for weeks the u.s. state department was asked to comment on the alleged use of fire bombs but its spokeswoman seemed a little confused. there were reports yesterday that the korean military is using phosphorus white phosphorus. slovyansk do you know anything about that did that come up in the conversation between secretary kerry and foreign minister lavrov if

10:05 am
to have killed at least two people and injured five more local authorities say the vehicle belong to one of the leaders of the self-proclaimed idiots republic denis pushilin who was not in the minibus at the time of the attack less than a week ago his assistant was killed in a drive by shooting where it was showing was the suspect the target we spoke to him earlier about the latest attempt on his life. we were this is just the latest in a series of attacks there were many people injured today i don't deny the possibility but i was the target of increased the number of security guards i have but you can't be sure of anything in a civil war the humanitarian situation in eastern ukraine is increasingly desperate thousands of people have fled to russia from the bombings and artillery attacks are to talk to some of those who've uprooted their families to escape the violence. what you can see
10:06 am
a few yards behind me is the russia ukraine border and for many people fleeing the restive aist of ukraine this is their first port of call it's a makeshift temporary holding center now the vast majority of people who are crossing the border have somewhere to go they can stay with friends or family within russia however many simply have nowhere to go no one to turn to and they're completely dependent on the rest of thora sees in the last twenty four hours more than six hundred people have crossed the border seeking shelter the majority of them are women and children who are trying to escape uncertainty of life in eastern ukraine and his place speaking to a number of them but it's an emotional time that it was. almost every night we heard shootings explosions multiple rocket launchers. it was. all my children are with me but my mother and grandmother stayed there people are hiding you basements and don't seem to realize this will never and the houses are
10:07 am
bombed we don't have anything anymore. but this god says that's not it scary that the government and the ukrainian media are lying about things they see their organizing humanitarian corridor but there is no sign of that they don't let people leave and. well the authorities in the rostov region are being helped by donations from people all over russia on thursday forty tons of supplies including food water medicine arrived but with an average of four hundred people crossing the border every day and seeking assistance it's clear that in the coming weeks or more aid is going to be needed. the rushed over egypt. and the hand of the organization for security and cooperation in europe has visited a ukrainian refugee camp in the rush hour where he heard directly from civilians about the attacks in the east so had to r.t. to call for more on the ongoing assault in the region. jihadist militants in
10:08 am
iraq are pushing alarm knowing close to the capital baghdad having captured two new towns in their latest offensive firing is taking place just fifty kilometers from the country's main city extremist from the islamic state in iraq and eleventh organization have already gained a strong foothold in the north taking control of a whole province and they're planning to transform iraq into a cradle of radicalism and here you can see some three thousand iraqi soldiers yielding to the jihad is who according to the u.n. conducted mass executions of both civilians and soldiers charges and it should count looks at what impact america's potential help in tackling the violence that might have. militants with the islamic state in iraq and syria are now in control of large parts of iraq including its second largest city of mosul they are now aiming at the capital baghdad the fight against the saudi syria has bolstered these islamist militants and gave them new resources and the sectarian food in iraq has allowed the group to gain momentum and recruits the sectarian war in iraq after the
10:09 am
u.s. invasion in two thousand and three and has been a source of constant violence ever since now the u.s. may invade again to stop the onslaught of the islamist militants my team is working around the clock to identify how we can provide the most effective assistance to them i don't rule out anything because we do have a stake in making sure that. these jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in either iraq or syria for that matter the u.s. says all options are on the table except boots on the ground u.s. officials don't specify what options they're looking at this could include airstrikes the goal of this militant group is to create a caliphate the islamic state to cross a vast area that includes syria and iraq but for many iraqis the prospect of being bombed by the u.s. again is no less daunting they're already being shelled by the iraqi government
10:10 am
which is striving to drive the militants out when taking over mosul heavily armed radicals overran police stations more than a thousand prisoners from the city jail and took over the international airport iraqi forces apparently ran in the face of the onslaught leaving behind weapons uniforms and armored vehicles more than half a million people have fled seeking refuge the situation for most iraq d.c. is dire and it has been so for years they were promised democracy but all they've seen is violence with no end in sight. as washington is helping iraq militarily skeptics say it would just be trying to undo. mass america created itself and there are numerous reports the extremists have seized the us army hardware that was supplied earlier to iraq michael o'brien who was a u.s. defense department contractor in iraq discussed iraq's disintegrating security situation with an isa now energies in the now show. you now have instead of suicide
10:11 am
bombers and all that and people getting killed you know it's going to the next step . instead of people just being people getting murdered now you're taking actually land there they're actually they vote for all practical purposes running ambar province they're taking over the country now how much responsibility support on the iraqi government here well you're actually government's incompetent it's inept but you know that the job is impossible you know saddam was it was a bad actor he was a bad guy but he kept a lid on everything through force the maliki you know is the shiite and the sunni's are upset because they were in charge and they want to take over again and saddam kept a lid on all of this maliki doesn't have a prayer of the iraqis the iraqi government can't and i don't know if any iraqi government could do this unless it was a dictatorship like it was under saddam. and while iraq struggles to feed the
10:12 am
hottest in the country the u.s. has fabricated terrorists at home as we'll tell you shortly here in our team what they're trying to do was to convince the american public that there is this large army of potential terrorists that they should all be very very scared about. a muslim advocacy group report says that since two thousand and one u.s. security services have been trapping and convicting innocence which washington perceives might be dangerous in the future. also ahead israeli matic stand up to lawmakers over the force feeding of palestinian prisoners on hunger strike. join me. for in-depth impartial and financial reporting commentary interviews and

welcome back this is our team international brushes given ukraine until monday to settle at least half of its energy debt or else pay for and for its gas in future it is some four billion dollars in our years and it hasn't paid for a month's worth of supplies now watching nervously is europe which gets thirty percent of its gas from russia and much of it goes through ukraine it's feared that key of could start a sign of any off european supplies if it gets cut off while in large part the deadlock is over price so let's have a look at that while russia wants three hundred eighty five dollars per thousand cubic meters which is one hundred dollars less than what some european states pay and it's roughly the same price that was agreed on by former prime minister yulia timoshenko back in two thousand and nine but then ukraine got some half day discounts for one the price was reduced significantly as part of russia's lease of military facilities in crimea and three years later them president yanacocha agreed
10:15 am
to endure a customs union with russia and that saw the gas price go down to two hundred sixty eight dollars with keep rejecting a trade union with russia and crimea no longer a part of ukraine those discounts are now gone but the crane insisted should get gas at the same lower rates are just ridiculous explains. somewhat surprising given that ukraine is now looking west and plans to sign an association agreement with the e.u. so the price of three hundred eighty five dollars is at a market level reasonable moscow is offering to fix that price for at least a year but that's not enough for prime minister gets a nuke who wants to squeeze the price to its lowest and that's despite the fact that ukraine still owes a whopping four billion dollars if gas is a political weapon then this political weapon is in the hands of the russian government and if gas is a good as it typically is all across the world then that trade is based on a contract and not based on whether russia likes the ukrainian government or not
10:16 am
interestingly the current energy minister yeltsin it was cabinet was in that same polls back in two thousand and nine when you let him go and rising that puts an agreed on roughly the same price which russia is offering today gazprom stearman is far from being impressed by kiev's bargaining tactics or use of guns because that is the strategy of the ukrainian side is outright blackmail them from the start they took new constructive steps may do compromises and apparently want to be maximally aggravate our gas relationship and of course that leaves europe in limbo too in two thousand and six gas supplies were cut off after ukraine siphoned fuel intended for europe from the transit bipes in two thousand and nine it did it again russia has already given ukraine the benefit of the doubt and shift to deadlines to help negotiations now the ball's in kiev court the e.u. criticised prime minister yes nukes demand that any deal be exclusively on ukraine's terms
10:17 am
a statement sat down after paedo the latest negotiations marcus papadopoulos editor of u.k. magazine politics first was amazed by caves baldness. the city of the ukrainian government is breathtaking and this is the same with governments that wants to place ukraine into the west's influence and then ukraine wants to have discounted prices from russia for russian natural gas russia has been more than accommodating to a government which is totally unrepentant speech ukrainian government has never apologized for paid in the russian language law has never apologized for the destruction of russian historical and cultural monuments by ukrainian nationalists for example world war two ones but at the same time it wants to have a discounted rate from russia. now the ukrainian crisis is the focus of today's cross talk with peter lavelle. divisions within ukraine are becoming greater with

their monitors. and we've all heard of preemptive strikes but what about preemptive prosecutions muslims in the us are outraged by what appears to be america's latest tactic in its war on terror and trapping people suspects my planned terrorist acts in the future explains how almost ninety five percent of convictions for this crime are the result of f.b.i. provocation. in a post nine eleven america hundreds of muslims have been arrested prosecuted and imprisoned for attempting to carry out terrorist attacks however this study just released finds that the u.s. government has played a major role in orchestrating most of those so-called terror plots in order to exaggerate the domestic threat of muslim extremism when examining the department of justice is the list of three hundred ninety nine terrorism cases the study found that ninety four percent of those cases involved preemptive prosecution that's
10:21 am
a practice of targeting those who officials deem predisposed to committing crimes before an actual crime is committed in some instances the study finds that defendants were targeted purely for their religious affiliations and ideological beliefs in other instances the f.b.i. used in each of provocative work to recruit vulnerable individuals moring them with cash and call worsening them into carrying out a terrorist attack that was set up by the f.b.i. now federal informant would provide the fake explosives and instruct the defendant on what to do this is otherwise known as entrapment now the one hundred seventy five page report was released by project salaam a group providing support and legal advocacy for muslims one of the co-authors told me his findings make it difficult to believe in the integrity of our u.s. justice system and federal agencies what they're trying to do was to convince the.
10:22 am
in public that there is this large army of potential terrorists that they should all be very very scared about and the entire legal justification for that depends on their being a war on terror without a war on terror they have no right to do this so they have to keep this war on terror going they have to keep finding people and arresting them and locking them up and scaring everybody critics say unless there is public outcry over government manufactured crime that too may eventually become common practice to target anyone very important artsy new york. off for mass surveillance of drone attacks in guantanamo the u.s. uses a whole range of preemptive tactics to attain it sounds and that's what cassie malley says one of the co-authors of the event ing terrorist report. the government uses this. vastly inflated terrorist threat to justify a number of things such as the mass surveillance the edward snowden disclosed used
10:23 am
as justification for drone attacks in places where there's no declared war as yemen and somalia it's used to justify torture even and yet there's a threat but you have much of a greater threat of getting struck by lightning as you do in america being in a terrorist attack whenever they start going after one group if they get away with it doesn't usually stop there and they have actually started using sting operations against other people besides muslims saying whether it's illegal i mean many of these tactics violate the us constitution. or some other stories now french president francois hollande has called for an end to a nationwide strike now in its third day it's called the worst transfer disruption in the country years union sworn to the governments to give up on a plan to unite the real network full service operator asked which are billions of years in down. fresh protests have sparked in

london in one of the caring hearts of one of the capitals of loving liberal e.u. they've implemented a plan to finally get almost people off the streets at night so that they provide these desperate people with a job so they can at least earn a few pounds and have some human dignity of course not they put down spikes everywhere on the ground so that the whole boats have nowhere to sleep yes that is right they are laying down spikes to keep up the homeless just like dragon's teeth keep out tanks now if this happened somewhere in say bangladesh on a bad day i might say well that is their business. but all the liberals in the e.u. just constantly cry from their ivory tower to the whole world about how we all need to be tolerant and be taxed to death to help people but as a guy who grew up in a bad neighborhood i can tell you that liberals never want to live near the people
